take to a washington nationals game for good season reason. the first time in 79 years that the play-off baseball is there. the grumblings about the team not winning without steven straussburg and could be overshadowed by more grumblings and that is with an 8-0 and you can't win if you don't score runs. the other headlines, the fans of the nats and sue, as know, i root for the nationals almost as anyone else. >> and wait a minute. >> as an-year-olds -- orioles fan now and they haven't been back to the play-offs since 1987 and it could be a decade or more before the nationals team gets back to the play-offs and disheartening, i think, from people who were not here at the stadium. i see it on twitter and online to see fans heading to the exit and with some two innings left
6:16pm
in the game and i think that everyone will get it back together for tomorrow and that is do or die. >> i agree with you it a heart breaking to see people off and i'm going tomorrow's game at 4:00 and i won't leave early, but i will be back for the 10:00 news tomorrow night. >> and sure. >> i'm excited. no matter what happens, this team is fantastic and have done well so far. >> absolutely. >> hope springs eternal. i'm an optimist, you know that, and i hope the os do well and we're looking at live conditions. it's beautiful day and we hit about 70 degrees for the high and official climatology hasn't come in yet and it was perfect. a nice sunny day and a cold front ask is coming through and it will pick up the breeze and
6:17pm
it will drop the temperatures. hey to see -- hate to see that healing, too and at 4:00 tomorrow. as brian said, we have to get things going tomorrow and this is what we're thinking the forecast is going to look like. a lot of sunshine and take your sunglasses. and it will be getting dark before the game's over and that first pec is around 60 and we're going lose the sun around 6:30 or so and take your -- layers. the temperature, 66; 68 in the district and some other pressesbo -- other places into the 60s and looking to cumberland. the temperature is 55 degrees and that is where that front is. columbus, 52; detroit, 46 and that is going to be cooler tomorrow. as expected, it's through dry
6:18pm
with an increase in cloud cover the next few hours and frontal system showers to pennsylvania and some snow picked in in michigan, the peninsula and it's that time of the year when the great lakes will see snow mixing in. we will have the clouds out of here, though, by tomorrow. and i wanted you to see the future cast. bright sunshine at 7 in the morning and it looks like a dry, crisp morning and a refreshing day. looks like we're crowding up on friday and that is going to come on through and this is coming through probably dry as well and maybe's couple of showers in the higher elevations where the leaves are spectacular and this is a great weekend to see the leaves peaking out at skyline drive. and into the weekend, things are looking terrific. overnight, because we have the front that is coming on through, we're going to drop to
6:19pm
47 degrees with a breeze. tomorrow, a sunny day and cool day and that is cooler -- cooler. by noon, 58 and by 5:00, the temperatures 60s and a descent day. sunny skies for us, the high in gaithersburg might be about 56 and some suburbs staying closer to the upper 50s and near 60 and to saturday, 64 degrees and looking nice. sunday will be warmer and this is your fox five accuweather seven-day forecast and we don't have much in the way of rain showers and there could be some spo spotty showers on monday. not bad. we're going have at least half of the days at or above 70 after we get to a couple of cool days here in the near future. everyone's going to be happy to see the weekend looking good. >> are you going to wear the
6:20pm
knee-high boots in. >> i think i'm going to wear something i can walk fast in. >> there you go. >> elbow a few people off of the metro. >> you're not leaving early? >> i'm not leaving early. i will be back for the 10:00 news. if we go into extrap enings, i'll dot weather out. there. check it out. it's 50 years after the cub on -- cuban miss it crisis. they show how president john f. kennedy deliberated to a void nuclear war. the exhibit called to the brink jfk and the cuban missile crisis opens friday. the space-x dragon rocket is making history. it successfully delivered more than 1,000 pounds of food and supplies to the international space station. this makes space-x the first private company to complete the task. coming up, we're going to focus on the nats and how the game played out today. lindsay murphy has that.

6:23pm
and burdens families with the cost of nursing home care. we have a president who won't let that happen. [ obama ] i'm barack obama and i approved this message. . back here live at nationals park. it's do or die for your washington nationals down 2-1 to the saint louis cardinals. if they don't win tomorrow, they go home and sports director is to the scot smith is joining us now and this is a young team, they resilient and perhaps this is an urgenty and not panic. >> they did something to win 98 games and what they did to earn it shifted. all of the that is swung in favor of the cardinals, the first play-off game here since 1933, and the performance didn't live up to the moment and take to you the highlights. davie johnson and company,
6:24pm
taking on the cardinals. in game three. and top of the second, down 1 life 0, already. -- 1-0 already. the 3-run blast to left and redbirds with a 4-0 lead. eight hits allowed, four runs into the bottom of the second. runner on for danny espinosa and lays down the bunt. espinosa called out at first base and he doesn't like it and to that dugout. and he beat the flow error error and that is to the bottom of the 5th now, bases loaded, two outs. can he make it a game? and pops out. do or die tomorrow, and back to you on the field and you came out of the clubhouse. how are they dealing with this? >> reporter: they cool, calm,
6:25pm

6:27pm
the fans or my family and because life is more important than the game of football. these things happening to us that affects us down the road and i have to make sure we are still safe and so that my family and the fans and teammates are not let down. >> and his only symptom was irritability with all of the questions he was getting. >> and that is -- . >> thank you for that. history is made in washington, d.c., play-off baseball back after 79 years. the nats. when i was younger and... financially stable. we were poor. the mgm casino in michigan. and it changed her life. clerk. way up. insurance... and i make great money. seven will create... twelve thousand jobs. to accountants... and construction workers. place to work with good pay... question seven.
